As its attempt to revamp the education system in the wake of the toppers’ and Board affiliation scams, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has cancelled the recognition of 68 inter-colleges and 19 schools.

Ever since the topper scam was unfolded this year, BSEB is carrying out inspection of all 212 schools that were granted affiliation over the tenure of Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh, the then Board chairman. Singh, a prime accused in the twin scams, has been chargesheeted and is now in jail.

So far, 30 people including 20 public servants, have been named in the scam. The Indian Express had carried a “Schools of Scandal” series in July which highlighted how most schools had been given affiliation in contravention of norms, and that most institutions did not have teachers and students, with some being run only on paper.

To improve evaluation system and make it more transparent, the Board has decided to introduce digital marking. According to officials, evaluators would now be given scanned answersheets, while original copies would be kept in the strong room. An evaluator will have to check the answer sheet on the computer screen and award marks on a table provided online.

The toppers’ scam had surfaced when Arts and a Science topper failed to answer basic questions related to their subject during media interviews after the Class 12 state Board results.
